When it all comes together...

550 miles on my new build. Got the AOD kickdown adjusted just right. Carb and timing are now close and the engine is breaking in nicely.

OMG this thing is fun to drive. What a brute.

426 hp 351w backed up by a heavy duty AOD 2500 tq 396 trac lock.

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Beth I hear you calling and I'll fix you right this time.
but both the kids need braces and I just can't spare a dime.
Just a few more paychecks and I'll get right back to you.
Oh Beth what can I do? Beth what can I do?

Sounds like you've put together a great car.
It is nice to have that power available, when you want it!
Just curious - what size tires are you running with that 3.96 rear-end ratio?
And with the AOD, what rpms @ 60 mph?

245/60/14

And 70 MPH is about 2350 RPM so I'm guessing 2250. I'll let ya know next time I'm on the freeway but I'm in CA nobody here drives 60.
